    Please point to that section.... I must of missed something.

    No. It goes to Canada...

How much of the oil produced in the United States is consumed in the United States? - FAQ - U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA)
    And Kore has a net loss... Net Imports of Total Crude Oil and Products into the U.S. by Country
    Also Latin America isnt a country.....

    But what does this have to do with anything?

    Developing nations need fuel oil. Get over it. People other than Americans need gas and heat.
    Ok... I dont think I said they dont need it or that people "other than Americans" dont need gas and heat..... So whats your point?

    And how often has Obama said things that didn't end up that way? Saying, posturing is one thing. Actually doing it is quite another.

    You may be right, and he'll veto it. But he hasn't vetoed it yet.

    Canada is not wanting the Keystone pipeline to go through the US just to end up back in Canada.

    Remember, Obamas executive order to delay the implementation of the Employer Mandate until 2015. Employers and soon employees are just now starting to feel the pain.

    ... the "nastiness" was not directed at you.... it was directed at those the continually tout this thing as some type of great piece of economic legislation. Many people have argued that we should build this thing because its going to create all these jobs. Its not. Just build it because it makes sense and stop (again, directed globally) being disingenuous. Sorry, there was no personal intent there. I do think this is a silly issue that people (in general...and, on both sides of the aisle) spend too much time worrying about.

    If he vetoes it he will be on the record in doing so and also will be the Senators who backed him.
